And you might be wondering, "but how do I find the best branding photographer for ME?".
It can be a little overwhelming to find the right photographer. If this is the case, here you have my four best tips on finding the perfect personal branding photographer.
5 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A PERSONAL BRANDING PHOTOGRAPHER
What's the most important thing when searching for the perfect branding photographer? Is it price, style, location, personality, etc.?
Look for a personal branding photographer who knows how to tell a story. To document your brand, you need an experienced photographer who can help you represent your unique persona and vision.
If you want your personal brand to be different from the rest of your competition, ask yourself these questions:
1. Do they have a portfolio that matches your style?
2. What's their specialty?
3. Do they offer packages?
4. Do you feel a connection? Can they bring your truest self to life?
1-Branding Photography Portfolio
Every photographer has a unique aesthetic and style. It is not about the camera. Are you looking for classic and sophisticated personal branding photos? Or is your look more bright and colorful?
It’s best to choose a photographer whose previous work resonates with you.
A great family portrait photographer isn’t necessarily a great personal branding photographer. Look for an experienced photographer who specializes in personal brand photography.
3-What do the branding packages include?
For a successful personal brand photoshoot, find out what the packages include.
These are some of the options:
- a consultation to discuss vision, styling, and wardrobe
- professional hair and makeup
- studio space
During your consultation, focus on how your photographer makes you feel. Do you feel confident in their ability to make yourself look good and feel good? Do you feel comfortable and relaxed? Do you feel like they understand you and your vision? It will definitely show in your photos!
I hope these tips help you with your search.
